“This site contains affiliate links for which OEMDTC may be compensated”

October 26, 2015 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 15V701000

Engine Oil Dripping On Manifold may Cause Fire

Engine oil that drips onto the hot surface of the exhaust manifold may result in a fire.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V701

Manufacturer General Motors LLC

Components ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Potential Number of Units Affected 1,003,556

 

Summary

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 1998-1999 Chevrolet Lumina and Oldsmobile Intrigue, 1997-2004 Buick Regal and Pontiac Grand Prix, 2000-2004 Chevrolet Impala, and 1998-2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. The affected vehicles were previously repaired under recalls 08V-118, 09V-116, and 15V-201 to address the possibility that engine oil may drip onto the hot exhaust manifold.

 

Remedy

The remedy applied under recalls 08V-118, 09V-116, and 15V-201 did not adequately remove the safety risk. Under the improved remedy, dealers will replace the engine’s front valve cover and gasket. Vehicles that are covered by recalls 08V-118, 09V-116, or 15V-201 that have not yet received the original remedy will instead receive the improved remedy under the original recall number. The recall began on February 19, 2016. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Oldsmobile customer service at 1-800-442-6537 and Pontiac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM’s number for this recall is 15757. Note: Until the improved remedy has been applied, owners are advised to park their vehicle outside since the fire risk exists even when the vehicle is unattended.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Question and Answers

Q1. Which vehicles are involved?

A1. All 1997-2004 Pontiac Grand Prix, 2000-2004 Chevrolet Impala, 1998-1999 Chevrolet Lumina and 1998-2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 1998-1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue and 1997-2004 Buick Regal equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 3800 engine. Including Canada, Mexico and exports, the total global population is 1,411,332

 

Q2. What is the condition that allows the oil leaks?

A2. Aging and wear to the valve cover and valve cover gasket can allow oil seepage.

 

Q3. Why such a large recall?

A3. Fires are occurring in some vehicles fixed using repair procedures from earlier recalls.  Also, we determined that some 2004 models not previously recalled may have a similar condition.

 

Q4. How many fires have been reported?

A4. Approximately 1,345 fires in vehicles repaired in earlier recalls for the issue.

 

Q5. Are these vehicle safe to drive?

A5. This condition does not affect the safe operation of the vehicle.  When the condition occurred while the car was in operation, drivers have reported seeing smoke from the engine compartment. (Approximately 85 percent of the fires in this recall occurred when no one was in the vehicle.)

 

Q6. Is GM recommending that the vehicle be parked outside and not in a garage or other structure until it is repaired?

A6. Yes.

 

Q7. GM built these vehicles for several years after 2004. Why are later models not being recalled?

A7. A material change was made to the valve cover after the 2004 model year, which reduces the risk of this condition occurring in those vehicles.

 

Q8. What about other models with similar engines?

A8.  We investigated other models from this era and found no defect trend.

 

Q9. How much did the NHTSA have to do in persuading GM to conduct this recall?

A9. We have been in regular communication with the agency regarding this issue, but NHTSA did not order or request that GM conduct the recall.

 

Q10. What about vehicles previously recalled that have not been repaired?

A10. When available, the service procedure for earlier recalls will be altered to provide the same remedy as for this recall.  And GM will issue new customer letters for unrepaired vehicles involved in earlier recalls.

 

Q11. When can I expect to be able to get my vehicle repaired?

A11. GM is finalizing a remedy for this condition and is making every effort to resolve this situation as quickly as possible.  Customers will be notified when to bring their vehicle to a GM dealer for this repair.

 

Q12. Will GM provide a free rental vehicle until the required repair is completed?

A12. No.  This condition does not affect the safe operation of the vehicle.  However, GM recommends that the vehicle be parked outside and not in a garage or other structure until it is repaired.

  1. Why did I not get the engine ‘beauty’ cover back after the recall work was completed? The repair dealership kept the part. Is this normal and if so why?
